March 10, 2011: We spayed our 47,000th cat today! It was a great reminder of how many cats we've helped, but also of how many need help. It is the beginning of "Kitten Season" now, which means that cats are going into heat and, if they aren't spayed or neutered, are repeating the reproduction cycle. By the summer, unspayed females will give birth to litters of four to seven kittens on the streets creating exponential numbers of cats destined to suffer needlessly. The female kittens, at as young as five months old, can get pregnant and repeat the cycle, creating even more homeless kittens.
Trap-Neuter-Return is the only solution. The Feral Cat Coalition is holding up to three spay/neuter clinics a week hoping to stop the breeding cycle. As quickly as cats reproduce, your help to get just one cat spayed/neutered can make a huge impact.
Thank you for caring about feral and stray cats.
